After Halloween, El Torito made a bee line for the sheep hat. He looks darn cute in it especially with his curls sticking out the front. But, it’s too small for him. I asked him if he wanted me to make him an animal hat. He said, “No.” Of course, I knew he wanted a hat but he wasn’t going to tell me. I named all of his favorite animals and some ridiculous ones, too.
Polar Bear? No.
Brown Bear? No.
Black Bear? No.
Pooh Bear? No.
I started naming animals just to see if he would eventually stop and say, “Yes.” I thought I was getting off the hook. Usually, if one gets something, the other has to get something equally as awesome.
No. Later that day El Torito makes a request for a zebra hat. A zebra hat. A zebra hat? How the hell am I going to make a zebra hat? I really don’t want to try to figure out how to make a zebra hat. Hats are usually knit in the round and a zebra stripe CANNOT be achieved in the round. Oh! Not only does he want a zebra hat, but he wants it to be a hood like the Timmy hat I made for Logan. With ears. It just keeps getting better.
Unfortunately, I had already started Chris’ sweater vest and he was told he had to wait. This was almost two weeks ago. He has since stopped asking every day and I thought he would let it go so I could finish the vest and make him a Doctor Who sweater. Nope. Today, he reminded me about the hat. Damn. He’s got a mind like a steel trap. And he’s always willing to give a helpful reminder. Damn.
At least he picked an animal whose colors are in my stash. That’s something.
